Admission decisions are made by the Admissions Committee. The Committee begins to review applications in October for admission to the following fall's entering class. Decisions are made on a continuing basis. Applications should be completed and submitted as early as possible, although applications are accepted through July 31.
The Admissions Committee engages in a holistic review of each applicant and will consider an applicant’s undergraduate grades and transcript, LSAT scores, letters of recommendation, employment, post-graduate educational experience, extracurricular activities, special skills and talents, community service and involvement, personal statement, and other factors.
The University of Toledo College of Law is committed to a policy of equal opportunity in education, employment, membership and contracts, and that no differentiation will be made based on race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, veteran status, or the presence of a disability except as mandated by pertinent legal requirements. We affirm the values and goals of diversity, and we strongly encourage applications from all candidates, including candidates from groups historically under-represented in legal education or the practice of law.
The Admissions Committee considers requests for deferral on a case-by-case basis.
Admitted students who wish to defer their enrollment should submit a written request to the Law Admissions Office outlining the reasons for the request.
Should the Committee grant the request, a seat will be reserved for the student in the entering class for the following academic year, provided that the student:
- Pays the non-refundable $150 seat deposit by April 1, or other agreed time, of the
- Contacts the Law Admissions Office by January 15 of the following year to confirm
intent to enroll that fall;
- Confirms that nothing has taken place in the interim year related to character and
fitness that would disqualify the student from entering the practice of law; and
- Pays the $250 commitment deposit by June 15 of the following year.
